Eat Slow To Eat Less

Date: June 20, 2017 | Time: 7:42pm

lobster-1615616_1920.jpgThe theory of 'eat slow and you won't eat as much' has now been proven in a new study conducted by University of Rhode Island researchers. Generally speaking, researchers found women who were instructed to eat slower ended up consuming significantly fewer calories. Additionally, immediately and within an hour of consuming their meals, women who ate slowly felt fuller and reported feeling more satisfied. Researchers stated that individuals could expect to consume around 200 calories less per day simply by eating slower.

ABC's Dancing With The Stars Needs Chiropractic Too

Date: June 5, 2017 | Time: 5:40pm

argentine-tango-2079964_1920During ABC's new popular program, Dancing With The Stars, football great Emmitt Smith discussed his key relationship with his chiropractor, Robert Parker, DC. The show included footage showing Smith receiving treatment from Dr. Parker prior to his dance competition; Dr. Parker has been treating Smith since 1995. According to head judge Len Goodman, Smith went on to deliver "the best samba of the night". During the same episode, two of the show's dancing professionals, Karina Smirnoff and Ashly DelGrosso, were dancing injured. As a result, program producers had a chiropractor standing by just in case the women needed treatment.

Massage Effective In Managing Dementia Patients

Date: May 8, 2017 | Time: 8:38pm

wellness-285587_1920In the review of two clinical trials, Danish researchers have found that hand massage appears to calm patients suffering from dementia - the predominant symptom of Alzheimer's patients. The effects of dementia are difficult to manage - wandering, difficulty with eating and bathing, anxiety, confusion and agitation. It is very exciting to explore treatment methods such as therapeutic touch and massage in order to assist the relief of these problems naturally. While more studies are needed to evaluate the effects of massage on patients suffering from dementia, it is clear that different forms of therapeutic touch and massage have some very powerful and as of yet unexplored benefits on the human body.

Chiropractic Adjustments/Manipulation Effective For Neck Pain

Date: April 26, 2017 | Time: 6:36pm

back-pain-1491802_1920Not that you didn't already know about the incredible effects of chiropractic care, but yet another study has been published showing the significant benefits of chiropractic care in a group of individuals suffering from neck pain. In this new study, researchers studied the immediate effects of a chiropractic cervical (neck) adjustment on neck pain and active cervical range of motion. Seventy patients (25 male and 45 female) aged 20 to 55 years with mechanical neck pain were involved with the study. Researchers concluded that with just a single chiropractic adjustment (often referred to as chiropractic manipulation), the majority of patients experienced an immediate decrease in neck pain as well as immediate increase in neck motion as compared with a control group.

Back-To-School Backpack Safety Checklist

Date: April 11, 2017 | Time: 8:33pm

backpack-copyIt's about that time when our children and teens begin heading back to school. Given that, we'd like to share a few important tips, compliments of our friends at the American Chiropractic Association (ACA), with the parents of those lugging around those backpacks filled with books, laptops and other school related materials.

Backpack Safety Checklist:

  • Is the backpack the correct size for your child? The backpack should never be wider or longer than your child's torso, and the pack should not hang more than 4 inches below the waistline. A backpack that hangs too low increases the weight on the shoulders, causing your child to lean forward when walking.
  • Does the backpack have two wide, padded shoulder straps? Non-padded straps are not only uncomfortable, but also they can place unnecessary pressure on the neck and shoulder muscles.
  • Does your child use both straps? Lugging a heavy backpack by one strap can cause a disproportionate shift of weight to one side, leading to neck and muscle spasms, low-back pain, and poor posture.
  • Are the shoulder straps adjustable? The shoulder straps should be adjustable so the backpack can be fitted to your child's body. The backpack should be evenly centered in the middle of your child's back.
  • Does the backpack have a padded back? A padded back not only provides increased comfort, but also protects your child from being poked by sharp edges on school supplies (pencils, rulers, notebooks, etc.) inside the pack.
  • Does the pack have several compartments? A backpack with individualized compartments helps position the contents most effectively. Make sure that pointy or bulky objects are packed away from the area that will rest on your child's back, and try to place the heaviest items closet to the body.

Chiropractic is a Natural Solution for Degenerative Hip Pain

Date: March 27, 2017 | Time: 7:42pm

skin_and_bones_2Hip pain has many different causes. A common cause is osteoarthritis (OA) which results in degenerative joint changes. OA can result from a traumatic injury, chronic joint stress or even genetic factors. The symptoms often begin as a mild ache in the groin or buttock area with hip stiffness in the mornings which may improve during the day but often increases with weight bearing activities. The pain may progress into an overshadowing upper leg or knee pain which can result from an altered gait (walking pattern).

There is little supporting evidence for the reversal of OA. Chiropractic care however, is helpful in mitigating the symptoms and slowing or sometimes halting the progression of the disease by helping restore proper joint alignment and function while diminishing inflammation and balancing supporting muscles.

Back Pain - A Little Something for Everybody!

Date: March 14, 2017 | Time: 7:37pm

stocksnap_vgpll83ygrNeck and back pain continue to be a global dilemma. A recent study surveyed 600 men aging from 35 to 70 for pain over a one-year span. The results showed 67% experienced low back pain, 64% neck pain and 17% mid back pain. Low back pain was reported as the most intense and disabling. Fortunately, chiropractic care has a proven track record of helping men, women and children with these kinds of problems.

Better Health through Balance

Date: March 1, 2017 | Time: 7:11pm

The health benefits of Omega-3 Fatty Acids are overwhelming. They include heart and respiratory health and include reduced incidence of heart disease, cancer, arthritis, asthma and diabetes. Such health benefits were first documented in Greenland Eskimos who consume a high cold-water seafood diet which is rich in Omega-3 Fatty Acids. Other foods rich in O3FA are nuts, berries and green leafy vegetables. In a well-balanced diet, anti-inflammatory O3FA would be in a 1 to 4 ratio with pro-inflammatory Omega-6 Fatty Acids. Unfortunately, the average American diet is more like a 1 to 15 ratio. The simple solution is to limit the intake of O6FA-rich foods such as prepackaged junk food which are made with vegetable oils.

The Unbreakable Wolfe's Law

Date: April 5, 2016 | Time: 12:18am

2498102489_619d2b53af_zWolff's Law shows that weight bearing exercise leads to increased bone density. Interestingly, X-rays of a professional baseball pitcher will show a much larger, denser, stronger bone in their pitching arm. A recent study supports adolescent sports and physical activity in general to improve bone health and lessen the likelihood of bone fracture later in life.

Specifically, jumping and running help increase the long-term bone density of the hips and pelvis where many osteoporotic fractures occur. Bone fractures in the elderly all too often result in a cascade of failing health and death.

Fortunately, the long term effects of activity early in life will likely reduce the likelihood of bone fracture by as much as 50 percent later in life.
